“The Japanese restaurant has built up a loyal following ever since it opened last year during the pandemic - something I attribute to the stunning, high-quality nigiri, sashimi, and sushi rolls which are tightly packaged in attractive wooden bento boxes. The North Oakland spot is predominantly a takeout operation (a.k.a. pandemic-proof), and coming here for a meal is great if you want fresh fish without having to put much thought into what to get - their omakase-style combos are 16 pieces of sashimi for $35 or $25 for 7 pieces of nigiri. The control freak in me prefers to customize my box, and choose from a menu of things like arctic char nigiri, inari, and spicy tuna maki.” - Lani Conway, Senior Editor
This new Japanese spot in Oakland focuses on nigiri, sashimi, and maki. The menu changes daily, but look to the website or Instagram for the latest updates. You can also get a seven-piece nigiri combo ($25) or 16-piece sashimi omakase ($35). Mujiri is open every day for lunch and dinner, but they close early if they sell out of fish, so make sure to call ahead.
